How to make Smash Burgers 101

Smash Burgers recipe is so simple

Smash burgers are so simple to make. They are basically the home version of greasy-spoon, diner style burgers.

Smashed thin on a flat-top griddle or cast iron pan, and dressed simply to your choice of toppings.

We will NOT criticize you for adding ketchup / catsup. Smash burgers are very personal so do what you like!

You will need:

Some ground beef – I like 85/15.

Some seasoning – I used Morton’s Nature’s Seasons which is basically a salt pepper garlic blend with added herbs and spices. (*any* seasoning will do)

Cheese is optional.

Sautéed onions are optional too.

Small squares of parchment paper or wax paper (foil will do in a pinch)

A quality bun (I like Maier’s Kaiser Rolls).

Technique:

– pre-heat skillet / flat top to medium high heat

– Season small pats of meat with your choice of seasonings

– roll small patties into balls slightly bigger than a golf ball

– place balls o’ meat onto skillet or flat top

– cover with paper and smash super thin

– remove paper

– cook until juices protrude through top of patties

– flip patties and cook until done

– assemble onto buns, add condiments of choice, and enjoy your 2am diner style burger!

Final Step:

Eat and enjoy!

Mother Smucker Salsa

Mother Smucker Salsa is a Maryland based company in Rock Hall MD.

We purchased a few jars of their Classic Medium Salsa at a local grocery store (Hockers SuperThrift in Bethany Beach Delaware).

Thick and chunky… fresh tasting with a nice mild heat… Mother Smucker Salsa is a HUGE winner in our book.

Ingredients: tomatoes, onions, green peppers, white vinegar, jalapeno peppers, lemon juice, salt, cilantro, fresh garlic, spices. (no artificial preservatives, no added sugar).

Heat Level: Rated 3 out of 5 Stars – Strong Mild to Medium – very much a salsa for everyone.

This is truly a family affair… with mom and pop helping out, bottling the salsa and labeling the jars.
